Carolin Widmann & Denes Varjon

Last night I went to see Carolin Widmann [link] and Denes Varjon, at the Wigmore Hall. It was an all Schumann recital, the three violin sonatas, and it was amazing! Widmann has this uncommon sound, so earthy and full bodied that I found myself in that wonderful place where the newness of the sound makes you a really alert listener. She was evenly matched by pianist Varjon. I strongly recommend that you catch them live, failing that why not try their recording of the Schumann sonatas on ECM ? [link]. Love tt
